Roleplaying Questions/Queries.
Yeah, that's right. You can ask questions about the rules and regulations, about various aspects of roleplay or anything else relating to roleplay.

I got one for you! What exactly does T1 mean?

RaiRai 11-25-2003 02:42 PM

'Type 1' fighting/roleplay. There are various different roleplaying 'rules' posted about the internet varying on site, but T1 and T2 are the most common rules around often used by roleplayers in chat rooms rather than message boards, but it all works on the same principal.

Forum participation roleplays, such as the ones this forum is meant for, are always built up of T1 roleplay. In depth roleplaying. Whereas T2 is based on speed posting, which is kept to chat rooms only. Shiney and I will not tolerate T2 roleplaying within this board, just to make sure you all know.

I'll post up a link to T1 rules once my internet stops fucking around with me.

I'm not new to roleplaying, but I'm a little new to the rules here, so I just have a few questions:

-One of the rules said something about not using a character that is or is like another character (such as Cloud, Sephiroth, etc); I understand that, but what if somebody wanted to make a RP sequel to a game or some kind of RP that mixes together such characters?


-The rules talked about short posts. How short would be 'short'. Sometimes posts tend to get short when you are just replying to another character and all you really need to write is your response to the character... which can be short sometimes.

Well I was just wondering. ^_^

I beleve I can get those ones.

1: It has to say that in the RP intro.

2: Try to make it more then a line in length.

Good job, Flare. I knew the oldbies wouldn't fail me. ^^

1. If the thread is made up for that purpose, then it is fine. What isn't okay is if someone is making a roleplay with their own characters and then someone steps in with a pre-made character (which also isn't there own.) It just ruins the theme of the roleplay and limits the gaming.

2. It would be handy for it to be a few lines in length. Short posts really put me off of reading, and I'm sure it's the same for others. Not only this, but just replying with one line doesn't really add depth or character to the roleplay.

Uh... yeah. SinceI just joined, anyone mind givin me a basic rundown on what the hell roleplaying is? Ive been to sites with fighting arenas where u customize a character and have at it with others. is it like that?

Flarecobra 12-07-2003 09:37 PM is a good place to see what Roleplaying is. It's a RP site created by our very own RaiRai and Shiney that has it's roots in an RP that started in these fourms, back over at TopWebComics.

(Hope you don't mind the plug.)

Thanks for posting the link, Flare.

Avariel spurned from a roleplay started at the old forums and was thankfully advertised by Brian at Nuklearpower. Most of our members are 8bit fans.

The basis of roleplay is descriptive narrative storytelling, only using a lot of people instead of just one. Each person takes a character and plays them through just as if they were that person.

There is a problem with a few threads recently... When it comes to combats, everyone's rushing to post, and oftimes the action moves so fast unwary posters can be taken unawares. This is compounded by the fact that real life tends to get in the way of posting, and that there can be over ten people involved in a battle, which only causes more headaches for the DM.

The question is, is there a practical solution to this problem apart from having multiple DMs?
